AUSITN — The man killed Saturday, June 5, in what Austin police described as a targeted shooting was identified Tuesday and a warrant has been issued for an 18-year-old in connection to the incident.
Forty-five-year-old David Harris was killed early Saturday. He lived at the residence where the incident occurred.
Police were called to the 100 block of 12th Street Northeast shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday for a report of a shooting with multiple victims.
Police found one victim who was pronounced dead on the scene. Police confirmed there were others injured, according to Austin Police Capt. Todd Clennon said shortly after the incident.
Austin Police Chief David McKichan said late Tuesday afternoon that a warrant has been issued for Miguel Nunez Jr., of Sioux Falls, S.D. Nunez is wanted on a charge of second-degree murder.
He is considered extremely dangerous and should not be approached, McKichan wrote in a news release.
A criminal complaint filed in Mower County District Court on Tuesday charges Nunez with second-degree murder-with intent-not premeditated and two counts of second-degree murder-without intent-while committing a felony.
Harris, who is not identified by name in the criminal complaint, suffered three gunshot wounds to his chest. Officers attempted lifesaving efforts, but Harris was pronounced dead.
A second person who lived at the residence also was injured. That person's identity, including their gender or age, was not included in the criminal complaint.
A juvenile boy spoke with police and reportedly told officers that they went to the house under the guise of buying marijuana but they intended to rob one of the home's residents.
It is believed that Nunez may have been injured in an altercation at the residence. He dropped his weapon on the way out, the criminal complaint states.
